Winemaker's Notes

Martín Códax Rías Baixas Albariño is delicate and medium-bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Flavors of ripe apple, peach, pear and lemon zest are framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. This Albariño displays intense floral aromas and an attractive acidity, making it a versatile, food-friendly wine.

The fruit for our 2012 Rías Baixas Albariño was hand-picked, destemmed and pressed in a gentle membrane press to preserve the delicate varietal characteristics of the Albariño grape. We used local, cultured yeasts to initiate fermentation, which occurred in stainless steel tanks for three weeks at a maximum temperature of 64°F. Fifteen percent of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation to enhance the flavor complexity in the wine, while the other 85 percent preserved the naturally crisp acidity of the Albariño grape. The wine rested on light lees for four months with no oak contact.
